85 days. One of the largest green beefsteaks. Can grow to over 1 pound and are just delicious. They have brilliant, neon-green flesh with a strong, sweet, and fruity flavor, much tastier than most red tomatoes. This family heirloom from Germany is beautiful. The winner of the 2003 Heirloom Garden Show’s taste test.

What are the pros? Sweet, juicy, unique in salsa

What are the cons? Largest fruit early on

Review:

These tomatoes are one of my favorite heirloom varieties, and my first tomato off this plant was 26 ounces! These are perfect for slicing and they also look great in a multi-colored tomato salsa. We had a lot of rain this year, and any cracks in the top of the fruit were minimal for heirlooms and mirrored the less-severe cracks found on the non-heirlooms. The remaining tomatoes from this plant have been more similar to a regular beefsteak size, not the giants that were the first to ripen, but they are still large and sweet and delicious. This variety will end up in my garden again and again.

Review:

Amazing Tomato, does very well in our area, produces prolifically, though late season, you get a lot of tomatoes, vines are covered, unlike brandywine which I now never grow. One year had 1 1/2 lb and 2 lb tomatoes. Flavor VERY good, close your eyes and you are eating a red tomato. Has a very nice slight spicy taste and green freshness not found in reds. I also grow red, yellow, orange, and black tomatoes, it is usually the best tasting. I now grow 3 plants every year out of the 23 plants I grow.

What are the pros? Favour, colour, meaty

What are the cons? Watery, low acid(poor canning)

Review:

Aunt Ruby's German Green is our favourite slicing green (when ripe) tomato. While some say it's hard to tell when they are ripe, you can see a colour change in the subtle stripes, and with a change in firmness we had no issues. These were one of the sooner tomatoes (3rd out of 12 varieties) so that was a nice surprise as well. We did fertilize with a (mostly) organic fish based granulated twice during the summer. Big producer. Susceptible to disease later in the season. Highly recommend.

What are the pros? so easy to grow

Review:

Tried these for the first time. They grew like weeds! Super easy to start, healthy plants, great producers. We had 2 plants and got 9 large tomatoes. Even with a late start (didn't get them in the ground til June) I'm very pleased. Will grow again for sure.

Review:

We love this tomato. We trialed it for the first time on our farm this year and love the results. Our Aunt Ruby plants are about 8 feet tall and extremely productive. Customers at our weekend farmstand love them and we think it probably gets the highest marks for taste. We will definitely plant them again and greatly increase the space we devote to them. These plants have had no problems with disease for us. We would describe the taste as somewhat fruity and creamy, for lack of a better word. Great great tomato. In terms of maturity, these are a mid-season tomato for us. They don't mature as early as some of our other varieties, but are still ahead of other large size tomatoes like Brandywines.
